Ice cream lovers in New York City have now their own museum at the NY Meatpacking District. The new gallery has entered the list of new trendy places to go.
Willy Wonka lovers might be satisfied with this new gallery, inspired by the traditional movie. Maryellis Bunn’s dream of swimming in a pool full of candy and colorful sprinkles also inspired the gallery. Bunn along with Manish Vora created the pop-up location. Bunn, who is 24-years old, is the co-founder of the new trendy gallery in NY that has all the mouths talking. Maryellis once had a dream in which she was floating on top of a pool full of sprinkles that inspired her to make this new art gallery.
Art features sweets
Visitors of the Ice Cream Museum will begin their tour with the ‘scoop of the week’ in which different New York shops will be presenting their products to the attendees. Some might include, vanilla ice cream with fruit-loops and marshmallows on the top.
The museum also includes trivias and fun facts about ice cream and history while users scoop down their sweet treats. Art will be surrounding the whole location as different themed rooms fill the museum.
Attendees will get a glimpse of Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory, as they enter the “chocolate room” filled with liquid chocolate, brown poofs and ambientation assembling the famous movie.
The Ice Cream museum also allows attendees to change their taste buds from sour to sweet as they take a dehydrated Miracle Berry. The pill allows them to taste lemon slices.
The highlight of the museum is Bunn’s dream-come-true, a pool full of sprinkles for the user’s’ full disposition. Many are calling it the museum’s main “selfie material,” although Bunn’s dream featured real sprinkles, the co-founder had 11,000 pounds of artificial dots made for the pool.
The tour finishes in an ice-cream inspired playground that features an ice-cream sandwich swing for two. The Ice Cream Museum is a pop-up art gallery that will be available from July until August 31. 30,000 tickets for visiting the one-month-long gallery are already sold out.
